PID Temperature Controller
A PID is a digital thermostat. It allows you to program the temperature that you want and essentially turns your heating element on and off to maintain this temperature. It is much more precise than a regular thermostat and can maintain temperature within 1 degree whereas with a traditional thermostat there are much wider swings in temperature.
Multi-Directional Steam Wand
The Lelit PL41TEM V2 features a multi-directional steam wand with a professional single-hole tip. This allows for easy manipulation of the wand and the possibility to fit many sizes of steaming pitchers.
The Lelit PL41TEM has an extraction manometer that measures the extraction pressure. This is a very handy tool when extracting espresso as it provides a window into the extraction. If your extraction is within the green area on the manometer you know that you are pulling a good shot. If you are past the green area, coarsen your grind, if you are below then grind finer.
Made of brass, the commercial grade brew group ensures even heat and water distribution and provides a superior brewing environment resulting in highly consistent espresso extraction.
Brass Boiler and 2 Thermostats
Made of marine grade brass, the boiler provides best steaming powers and quicker recycling times when brewing multiple espressos. The brass construction resists scale build up and pitting for long lasting durability. Two thermostats are built into the machine. One controls the temperature for steam and the second monitors the boiler to protect it from overheating.
3-Way Solenoid Valve
The three-way solenoid valve is a commercial feature that not only directs the flow of water from the boiler to the brew group, but also relieves the water pressure off the coffee when the brew switch is turned off. The valve dries out the used ground coffee in the portafilter immediately after the brewing is finished. So you can straight away remove the handle, easily knock the dried coffee out and reset of the machine for another shot.
A Powerful Pump
The Lelit PL41 has a very powerful pump rated at 15 BAR of pressure to extract maximum flavor from the coffee beans.
The water reservoir (2.0 litre capacity) is removable for easy cleaning. You can fill it while the machine is operating or remove it for filling at the sink.
A cup-warming surface located on the top of the machine holds up to 6 espresso/demitasse cups and keeps them warm that is a prerequisite of perfect espresso.
The exterior of the machine is made of durable, top quality polished stainless steel which is easy to clean and maintain.
